I'm working on a drupal page for an academic department, and I've created content types for Faculty, Students and Alumni. Both the Student and Alumni content types have a field for "Advisor", which is an entity reference to a Faculty member. In the student and alumni display, the advisor field then links to the advisor's page.

Now, I'd like to have the advisor page show a list of all their students (current and former). Is there a simple module that will do this? I don't want to write my own module - if there isn't a relatively simple way to do it, I can just have an entity reference in the Faculty content type and do manual entry.

EVA: Entity Views Attachment can help you doing this task.

"Eva" is short for "Entity Views Attachment;" it provides a Views display plugin that allows the output of a View to be attached to the content of any Drupal entity. The body of a node or comment, the profile of a user account, or the listing page for a Taxonomy term are all examples of entity content.

See this tutorial: https://www.torontowebsitedeveloper.com/drupal-video-tutorials/drupal-7-node-reference-tutorial

"Entity Views Attach: Use Views Almost Anywhere" contains a great tutorial about it.
